Notes on Revelation


"One of the names of the Messiah, with the Jews, is, 'Anani,' which signifies 'clouds'; and his coming is so described, both to denote the grand and magnificent manner, in which he will come, making the clouds his chariots; and to strike terror into his enemies, clouds and darkness being about him, thunder and lightning breaking out of them, as tokens of the vengeance he comes to take upon them; as also the visibility of his coming, he shall descend from the third heaven, where he now is, into the airy heaven, and sit upon the clouds, as on his throne, and be visible to all."

(The New John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible)

When Moses had been carried to God in a cloud [from Sinai], which was always ready to bear him to God and then restore him to men...

(Legends of the Jews, Louis Ginzberg, Book 3)

Behold, he cometh with clouds: and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.--Revelation 1:7

The Doctors in Sanhedrim (fol. 98. a.) [say]: "If they are worthy (i.e. the Israelites), then he (Messiah) shall come with the clouds of heaven; but if they are not worthy, then he will come poor, and riding upon an ass."

(A Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Hebraica John Lightfoot)
